  • Always know what your action is because then when you come in in the morning

  • confident or when you're coming in the morning and you can't hit your ass with both hands, you know what to do.

  • Just boil down what it is you're doing whether there's a camera around or just "What am I doing today today?"

  • Today I'm showing up and I'm trying to be

  • honest and also to

  • to listen and learn.

  • I think part of the reason I'm still so interested not just in

  • life, but also, you know, getting to do what I do is I'm a fan. I love

  • movies. I love creativity. I love music. I love, I love

  • culture and the fact that I actually have a place in it while I'm

  • observing it and digging it, is like,

  • it's an honor.

  • This concept of things just sort of falling into place. I'm a big believer in that too. "Yeah."

  • What is that though? Is that you getting out of your own way.

  • Like what is that? "Isn't that 70% of it?" Yeah. "Yeah. I say it's 70% maintenance of "What can I do to do my part to stay out of the way?"

  • And then the other part I always think of it as like this little super thin

  • invisible thread,

  • but you can feel the tug and you just kind of, you have to be really gentle and you have to pause when agitated

  • and you have to go for it. When you go like there's 4 walls in here, which one has the map behind it?

  • It's that one! And you knock down the wall that's there.

  • Half the stuff that I've been able to do right in my creative life are

  • principles that I learned on the mat with my Sifu. Guard your center.

  • Keep your eye on the lead elbow.

  • Get to the blind side. Half the time

  • if I would be in a

  • critical artistic

  • situation, I

  • would just say⁠—

  • because Wing Chun problems are life problems like problems or Wing Chun problems⁠—

  • and I would just go back to how did this kind of relate to⁠—

  • "30 years he has struggled with a dangerous drug addiction that nearly destroyed him. And today, he says he's clean.

  • He's in love. And so by the time you're in prison, that's not rock bottom for you." Nope." Nope.

  • It coincided with my recovery

  • and the 2 things just somehow or other seem to to lock in and it

  • locked in with this: It was an apprentice, an apprenticeship and it was an apprenticeship that was contingent on me being in a certain

  • headspace. You know, cause you can reach out for help in kind of a

  • half-assed way and

  • and you'll get it and you won't take advantage of it. You know, it's really, it's not that difficult to overcome these seemingly

  • ghastly problems. What's hard is to start.

  • What do they say "faster alone further together"? "How can you possibly hope to stop me?" Like the old man said

  • "together."

  • Sometimes you can only think about further because you gotta get downfield.

  • Other times you're thinking,

  • "Hey,

  • this is my moment to run and I need I need a little help and a little approval and I need a little leeway,

  • but that's any creative endeavor. It's easy to embrace hopelessness

  • when things seem insurmountable. It's actually just a matter of time until all of the elements come together for things to be

  • all right. I mean, I believe that, you know, most

  • difficult

  • situations will resolve themselves if you are persistent, and if you don't if you don't give up entirely and that's what I never

  • did. I never gave up. I ran those 6 or 8 lines I had a

  • thousand times.

  • Lying in bed over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

  • it was one little mosaic after the next and

  • it was a piece of work I was doing.

  • And I cared about doing it as professionally and as honestly as I could. At this point in my life and being,

  • you know kind of middle-aged and all that, well, I know I'm gonna fly around the world

  • I'm gonna sell some soap and I know I have a new project and I know I've just retired my Jersey on this

  • 12-year journey I've been on and

  • how do I wanna start? And it came up, how would you like it go?

  • Yes, that's exactly what happened. I want to go have the Joe Rogan experience and kickoff this

  • year in this season and this new chapter by doing what I love which is an interview as we're looking at each other and

  • there's a give-and-take. "I went to rehab and I stayed in the same room that Robert Downey Jr. stayed in.

  • He became my idol because, I mean, what he did with his career.

  • I made him my mentor without him even knowing, god. He wrote on a corkboard "McCallum Hall, I am here with you all."

  • Where is your heart?

  • It's easy to believe that things are gathering momentum and going into a negative place.

  • I mean, I think human nature can tend to be a little bit critical of itself. Sometimes you just gotta go, "Yeah, you know, I

  • effed up." I just took full advantage of it.

  • I mean, you know, even though it wasn't the end of my struggle, you know,

  • I made the best use of that time that I could because they say "if you don't do the time the time will do you."

  • You earned 8cents an hour?

  • What's humbling is to is to have to live your

  • life for some reason that is yet to be explained to me by

  • God in in such a public way when so much of it is so humiliating and embarrassing.

  • So by the time I got into prison, it wasn't like, "Wow, this is the worst thing that's ever happened to me."

  • You know, it was an extension of

  • things being miserable. It's just incredible our

  • culture

  • never encourages taking a break; never encourages saying, "Don't chase that thing."

Always know what your action is because then when you come in in the morning
